    Not sure they are even Love Ballads, I like Dream On the best of the songs you listed.

    I consider this more of a Power Ballad.

    In Junior High we had a little flea market in town with a record store booth. My friend and I went in and, because we were young and lame, we wanted to buy "Dream Weaver." The owner, a youngish guy, said we should not buy "Dream Weaver," because it was indeed lame, and that we should buy something very cool called "Dream On" instead. He told us that it had been released as a single a couple of years before and it was a flop. However, it was being re-released and he expected it to be a giant hit and make Aerosmith a household name. He promised us we would love it. We bought it without even listening to it first. We brought it home and listened to it over and over.

    When I was young I thought the name of Dream on was Dream Weaver. When he said sing women, I used to think he said Dream Weaver, dream me a tune. I wasn't really into the tune just from what I heard on radio.
